The light of lights looks always on the motive, not the deed, the shadow of shadows on the deed alone.
William Butler Yeats
More W. B. Yeats quotes :
I heard the old, old, men say 'all that's beautiful drifts away, like the waters.'William Butler Yeats
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon Ireland's history in their lineaments trace think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.William Butler Yeats
